The holiday-themed Dawning event is back in Destiny 2, and it’s now live in the game, which means that Guardians can start participating in new PvP activities and obtain Dawning engrams. Here’s everything you need to know about the event this year.
How Long Is It Running?
The Dawning went live in Destiny 2 on Dec. 19, and the event will run until Jan. 9. This gives you just a little under a month to farm for those Dawning engrams. These new engrams can only be obtained by achieving a weekly Milestone challenge, or by purchasing them from Tess Everis at the Eververse shop in the Tower. The engrams come packed with new cosmetic items like armor, Sparrows, and ships. So if you want to give your Guardian an exclusive new look, this is the way to go.
During this time, the Tower will also be covered in snow, and you can actually have snowball fights with other Guardians in the social space. The snowball fights will also be available in Crucible, where you can weaken your enemies by hitting them with a snowball.
How to Start the Event?
Now that the event is live, you simply have to log into Destiny 2 and speak with Tess to obtain your first engram. After that, you’ll be directed to Ikora Rey, where she’ll give you a new Milestone to work towards to. The Milestone is called ‘Spreading Holiday Cheer,’ and once you complete all the objectives, you’ll be rewarded with more random cosmetic items. Not to mention, a chance of getting better Legendary gear as well if you’re trying to raise your Power level.
